    He's using a PXG logo'd bag (stand bag) at the Greenbiar.

    IN what way? To anyone paying attention to PXG marketing buzz since its creation it would seem to make perfect sense. John would play Kmart clubs if they sent him the right check.

    You forgot the irony smiley. He got and still gets a lot of invites to tournaments he isn't qualified for, he gets sponsor deals despite playing not so well for most of the last 20 years. The things not going his way (gambling debts, 4 divorces, drinking, overweight, WDs) were not happening by accident or some godly decision, they were the results of choices Big John made. Him getting another equipment deal or an invite to the Greenbrier is just another lucky break for the man who could have achieved so much if he only put some energy in.

    Is John Daly even relevant to Golf anymore? He is the epitome of a wasted talent. Tremendous natural ability but lack of work ethic and too much love to get drunk wasted what should have been an incredible career. He's now left relegated to hawking his trinkets from the side of his mobile home and hoping for sponsor's exemptions. I would rather see someone working their butt off get benefits like a club contact instead of someone hanging on to their past while not working their butt off getting back to that plateau.

    I realize that. Believe me, I'm pulling for Daly to overcome his demons. My comment is based on squandered potential. I've met John Daly and he was more interested in selling his trinkets and drinking his beer than working on his game. There are many young players who are looking/hoping for a break but don't get one. That's all I'm saying. Daly has had his day in the sun and if he were working his tail off I'd think differently.



    We all have some sort of demon we wrestle with but that's a different issue.

    That's kinda harsh. We are not all wired to be this shining example of humanity. He has life long issues.

    And why is it harsh? Many would say the assessment is spot on accurate. Look at last week for example. He withdraws from the US Senior Open because he doesn't get a cart. He's invited to submit additional information to validate this request. Instead of validating this he simply quits and withdraws. Scott Verplank went through the necessary steps and had a cart. Why should JD be treated differently? Again, if he worked half as hard on his game than he does selling trinkets maybe his detractors would think differently.

    I don’t care what people think of John Daly, his demons, or his lifestyle. I like John Daly. I find him to be to infinitely interesting. The same goes for PXG.

    Not too many people gave TW a pass regarding his DUI driving or his skirt chasing. But TW put a pretty brilliant career together with multiple major wins and dozens of tournament wins around the globe from 1996 through 2013. John Daly won 4 tournaments between 1991 and 1995, three more between 2001 and 2003, and has an impressive record of WDs and MCs aside from his multiple off-course "ventures".

    Probably has a lot to do with how each one handled their “issues”. Daly was upfront about his addictions and has said he can’t overcome them. Tiger hides in a house and has a guy release statements about his drugs being mismanaged. Daly gets raked by his wife and he shows up with open wounds on his face to play the next day. Tiger gets whacked with a 9 iron and he somehow refuses to talk to law enforcement about driving his suv over a fire hydrant. Daly plays like carp and simply walks off, WD’ing like a child. Tiger makes up fantastical theatre about his glutes and whatnot. I think the difference is that Daly acknowledges his fans while Tiger generally wishes they all died in a fire while he watched from the clubhouse. One is a forgivable character, the other is not.
